the blog thief

yes, there is a blog thief out there. it's lurking in my home, ready to steal any tidbit or morsel of blog material that it can. it pretends to be my friend, but then i realize that anything i want to tell you has already been told.

i get up in the morning, and it's there, waiting. before i head to bed at night, it lurks in the darkness with the false promise of "it will only take a minute." but before i know it, it's 1am...or 2....or sometimes even 3. it also steals other things from my life, not to mention the lives of many of my friends....and even mere acquaintances....not to mention total strangers. it sucks sleep from before my eyes. and let's not forget the theft of a clean house, exercise, and anything else that *should* be done throughout the days.

the thief springs to life at the click of a button, ready to pounce in the blinking of an eye, never keeping its promise of "just one more minute, and that's it."

BUT this thief can also be defeated at the touch of another button. it can be "shut down" with just one finger. yet those it steals from choose to believe the false promises, choose not to lift that one finger.

this thief is also the master of addiction and distraction. the promise of "just one minute" is sometimes believable, especially when we have every intention of quitting after just one minute. it distracts us with it's constantly updating messages. sometimes it sends out numbers in the form of messages. but don't be deceived...altho those messages may contain information that seems important to you, most are not. it tells you that you are well-liked, yet it continues to steal, addict, and distract.

this thief also deceives in other ways. it promotes activity, yet we become more sedentary. it promotes cleanliness, yet our homes become chaos. it even promotes sleep, yet we are becoming more and more sleep-deprived. it promotes health, yet we are remaining unhealthy.

and don't be deceived by it's false sense of importance in your life. the messages it sends out may seem innocent enough, harmless enough, important enough. but be warned, they are the thief's greatest MO. these things of false importance only serve to help the thief steal precious time from your children and other family and friends.

now, some of you are saying "but if i didn't have it in my life, i wouldn't know this or that about so-and-so." yes, that may be true. however, there is a solution i have for that. it's called "an instrument for reproducing sounds at a distance", aka phone, aka telephone. which brings to mind that the thief is also the thief of the spoken word. not to mention that it renders this "instrument for reproducing sounds at a distance" useless. and let's not even get into how it robs from the agency called USPS. 


with these warnings i hope you take every precaution to not let the thief steal what is important to you. with the right tools, you can use the thief instead of it using you. use your words and messages wisely. encourage others to do the same. promote generosity and kindness, instead of allowing the thief to steal those characteristics from you and others. send out messages via the thief that build others up, instead of tearing them down. use the thief to remind others to get plenty of sleep, to keep a clean home, to spend time with family, to love life. then take your own advice to heart, and do the same. 


then reach over with your little finger and utilize the button to "shut down" the thief that goes by the code name of "fb", and let's stop it in its tracks. let's call it what it really is and change that second letter to a "c" for "crook". before you know it, your sleep will be sweet, your home will be clean, and your love for your family and friends will grow because of the time you spend with them.
